Ph.D. Minor in Ancient Studies

The Program in Ancient Studies seeks to encourage the study of antiquity in all its facets-including its history, art, architecture, literature, music, philosophy, religion, and science-and to promote interdisciplinary approaches to ancient culture. The program draws on the faculty of seven departments: Anthropology, Classical Studies, Fine Arts, History, History and Philosophy of Science, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. The Minor in Ancient Studies aims to help students expand the depth and scope of their knowledge of ancient cultures and learn about different approaches to them. To promote these ends, it permits students to draw on courses from two or more departments outside of their home department. A student might choose to group together courses from different departments that focus on a certain period (e.g., late antiquity) or topic (e.g., social history).

Course Requirements
Students must complete twelve (12) graduate credit hours of appropriate courses outside their home department. These courses must be in at least two (2) different departments. No more than three (3) credit hours of directed readings can be applied to the minor. The minor advisor (Matthew R. Christ, Classical Studies: mrchrist@indiana.edu) must approve the particular courses that are to be counted toward the minor.

Courses in which a student receives less than a B (3.0) will not count toward the minor.
